Street Fighter X Tekken producer Yoshinori Ono said said the fighter will have free and paid DLC available “post-launch for an allotted period of time,” and plans are to make it cross-compatible between Vita and PS3.

Speaking with Joystiq at TGS, Ono explained how such compatibility would work.

“With the PS3 and the Vita, yes, they’re different hardware, but they’re part of the same Playstation family, so to speak, so we’re already talking with Sony about ways to sync things together,” he said.

“As long as you’re using the same PSN account, things you’ve purchased on the Vita version will work on PS3 and vice versa.”

Ono also said Capcom is in talks with MadCatz about creating a peripheral for the game on Vita, sort of similar to the 3DS slidepad with arcade hardware.

“You can’t replicate the experience entirely on a portable, but I think if we made a small joystick that you could just keep in your bag, and maybe even if you’re in economy class, whip it out during a flight, put your Vita in there, and replicate to some degree the arcade experience, it would be really awesome,” he said.

At this time though, nothing has been decided regarding the peripheral.
